From the Official Doctor Who BBC Blog:

We can confirm that Doctor Who returns to BBC One during the Easter weekend on Saturday, 30 March, 2013.

The Doctor is back in a fantastic adventure written by the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat. The episode – the first in a run of 8 – is directed by Colm McCarthy whose previous credits include Hustle, Spooks and Endeavour.

Later adventures in the run include episodes written by Mark Gatiss (Victory of the Daleks, Night Terrors) and Neil Gaiman.

Steven Moffat has promised us that in terms of Doctor Who, 2013 will be a ‘tremendous’ year and we’ll be bringing you more about the forthcoming adventures soon. But if you can’t wait for the TARDIS to return on 30 March, you can take a brief look now at what’s in store for the Doctor, Clara and some familiar friends… and foes!

The BBC have announced that the Maxine Peake starring drama Room At The Top will finally be shown on BBC Four over a year after it failed to materialise on it’s original air date.

Room At The Top was due to be broadcast in April 2011 but following a copyright dispute between Remus Films and the estate of writer John Braine the drama was pulled from the schedules.

Adapted from Braine’s 1950’s set novel it tells the story of Joe Lampton (Matthew McNulty) a working class boy who leaves his village for the mill town of Warley with plans to marry into high society. After joining the local amateur dramatic society he finds himself torn between two women.

Production company Great Meadow said, “the producer of the TV adaptation of Room At The Top, Great Meadow Productions, is pleased to announce that the issue of copyright between Remus Films and the estate of John Braine, represented by David Higham Associates, has been resolved.”

Great Meadow added that the two part drama will be shown on BBC Four, “in the near future.”

Amongst the cast are new Doctor’s companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, Kevin R McNally (Pirates of The Caribbean) and Zoe Telford (Sherlock).
